LANSING, April 30, 2007 – The newest Raffle game from the Michigan Lottery offers the best odds ever! When you purchase a new Super Raffle ticket, odds are one in 55 that you’ll win at least $500!
Super Raffle is the first of its kind in Michigan or any other state. The $50 ticket has two top prizes of $2 million, 25 prizes of $100,000 and 4,500 prizes of $500!
Not only does the game have great prizes, but since only 250,000 tickets will be sold, the odds of winning are the best yet! Super Raffle tickets will be on sale at all Lottery retailers beginning May 7.
?The two Millionaire Raffle games were so successful, we’re ready to take Raffle games to the next level with Super Raffle. The limited number of tickets and more prizes are sure to make this game as popular as our other Raffles,” Lottery Commissioner Gary Peters said.
He added that while the Lottery expects Super Raffle to be a success, it will not take the place of Millionaire Raffle. The next Millionaire Raffle game is expected to be launched in the fall.
The Super Raffle drawing will be conducted on June 18 and the two $2 million winning numbers will be displayed during the Lottery’s drawing broadcast that evening. Players will be able to check all winning numbers at the Lottery’s Web site on www.michigan.gov/lottery, at Lottery retailers or at Lottery regional offices throughout the state.
All proceeds from the Super Raffle, as well as from all other Lottery games, are contributed to the state School Aid Fund which supports kindergarten through 12th grade public education in Michigan. In fiscal year 2006, the contribution was $688 million.
